Berkeley Lab Computing Sciences to be Well-Represented at ISC19
June 10, 2019
Numerous Berkeley Lab Computing Sciences staff will be participating in the ISC19 conference, June 16-20 in Frankfurt, Germany.
First held in 1986, ISC High Performance is the oldest conference and networking event for the high performance computing (HPC) community. It offers a five-day technical program focusing on HPC technological development and its application in scientific fields and commercial environments.
On Monday, June 17, Berkeley Lab Deputy Director Horst Simon and Erich Strohmaier, who founded the TOP500, will present the TOP500 list. The TOP500 project, started in 1993, ranks and details the 500 most powerful non-distributed computer systems in the world and publishes an updated list of the supercomputers twice a year.
On Tuesday, June 18, John Shalf – who leads the Computational Research Division’s Computer Science Department – will give a keynote address on what the future holds for HPC following the slowdown and eventual demise of Moore’s Law.

About Computing Sciences at Berkeley Lab
High performance computing plays a critical role in scientific discovery, and researchers increasingly rely on advances in computer science, mathematics, computational science, data science, and large-scale computing and networking to increase our understanding of ourselves, our planet, and our universe. Berkeley Lab’s Computing Sciences Area researches, develops, and deploys new foundations, tools, and technologies to meet these needs and to advance research across a broad range of scientific disciplines.
Founded in 1931 on the belief that the biggest scientific challenges are best addressed by teams, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and its scientists have been recognized with 13 Nobel Prizes. Today, Berkeley Lab researchers develop sustainable energy and environmental solutions, create useful new materials, advance the frontiers of computing, and probe the mysteries of life, matter, and the universe. Scientists from around the world rely on the Lab’s facilities for their own discovery science. Berkeley Lab is a multiprogram national laboratory, managed by the University of California for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science.
DOE’s Office of Science is the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States, and is working to address some of the most pressing challenges of our time. For more information, please visit energy.gov/science.
